To him, Bono

What can I say? The man truly changed my life...



To him, Bono
You set my mind free,
You wide opened my eyes
To the world surrounding me

Before you, I was blind
Eyes closed to the human heart
Where emotions were numb

Feeling angry and lonely
Misunderstanding myself
You put words on my scars

Slowly a light came flooding inside
Catching my breath
Wondering where it came from

This light was living within me
You said words and set fire
To my heart and to my soul

But you never gave up
Giving and sharing them
Waiting for a sparkle to burst

You lighted up the way
Showed me unbelievable places
With a word or just a look

With you, I am feeling alive
Blood rushing in my heart
Giving birth to new feelings

Pushing me to the edge
But always by my side
To face the world, no longer on my own

And embracing me warmly
When the storms won't just stop
Keeping our hearts safe

Burning like fire inside
But never killing me
You have always been there

Worshipping you, always
To give you back my soul
But never losing myself

With you, colours are bright
Dark clouds slowly creep away
The world seems a little safer

With all my heart and soul
I'll never forget or lose you
You're inside, pounding in my heart... (September 2005)


What do you think?!
I need to make a 2010 version, what Bono means to moi today

Thank you!!!
The words just came tumbling out, like that, without much thought!
"A feeling so much
Stronger than a thought"
and you sometimes you just have to let your speak for itself...

Members of the Unite Church of Bono's Worshippers! We have CREDO now

I like the way you showed emotions in this poem
It's very moody

I think if Bono ever were to read that, he'd be truly touched . Such a sweet sentiment-I know, there's that whole, "Avoid idol worship" thing and I do agree with that on one hand, but at the same time there are some people out there who do deserve some genuine praise for all the good they've brought to people's lives. Which Bono has most certainly done. So what if it's gushy? It's honest and lovely and full of truth, so it's allowed to be .

Thanks Angela for your insightful reply
Indeed, there is that "idol worship" thing that is quite serious, no matter if the line is blurry. But like you said, there are some people out there who truly deserve and command such praise, Bono is one of them, I'm sure

Yes, it's quite personal and heartfelt, but I stand proud behind my words, because that is truly what I've been through as a U2/Bono fan. I don't pretend to say that it applies for everyone, but in my case, here's what I feel like. Your comments are looove

But I'm up for the challenge of writing a new version, not to erase this one, but to show a kind of evolution, maturation in my feelings for that brilliant but a hell of a bad driver man Like Monet who painted 250 versions of his water lilies, it's all about showing one thing through a different lens, by exploring different facets of a single element!

We'll have a catechism
Looking forward to read a new version
And Angela is right, Bono would be touched if he saw it

Gosh, I can't even begin to wrap my mind around what Angela said, I'm sure he would but I'm pretty sure I would be speechless if he ever was to read itBut I'd be honored that's for sure!!

What a lovely poem! I'll have to dig through some of my old poetry. There's a few U2 inspired poems somewhere in those. GAH! I loved this! The emotion in it is just...wow. Beautiful. Wonderful job, once again!

Thanks Jess!
There's just some people in your life that inspire you, and sometimes it's good to give back!
